Support Your Local, Independent Merchants
Let’s build an annual tradition that strengthens local economies, expands employment, nurtures a sense of community, and provides a more relaxed, fun, and rewarding gift-buying experience.
If you join us in shifting those dollars to locally owned, independent businesses, we’ll all generate 2-3 times as much economic activity in our community than if we had spent our money at a national chain.

What is local and independent?
5 Reasons to Bank Local
As customers, we spend a large percentage of our annual shopping budget between Nov. 1 and Dec. 31.
By choosing to spend that money at local, independent businesses, we have a direct, substantial impact on our local economy.
